The Herend-related programs of the Night of Works of Art took place at the Herend Porcelain Manufactory’s new flagship brand store Palais Herend in Budapest. Demonstrations of porcelain making and porcelain painting, film screenings, and the presentation of the Phoenix bravura product met with great interest.
Since the Herend Porcelain Manufactory was founded almost 200 years ago, many have wanted to know the secret of making Herend porcelain works of art. This time the dreams of the lucky ones could come true, as they had the opportunity to take part in a unique, special journey into the world of porcelain! They could admire how skilful fingers shape, throw, and paint the fragile porcelain pieces. In addition, the wonderful objects could be made by enterprising visitors themselves with the help of our masters.
This year, there was also a film screening at a series of events offering more programs than ever before. Through the film, those interested could follow the birth of European porcelain and the making of Herend porcelain works of art. The mission of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory can also be achieved here: in addition to the production of high-quality porcelain, to create ideal conditions to promote this special profession and technology and to pass on the traditions of applied arts.
We are glad that so many people took part in our events, see you next year!
